A Good Thing

Today, we have a guest blogger. She is Dianne, wife of Pastor Lorne. You can find more info on Dianne at: glenavonchurch.googlepages.com/musicministry

Most every year, people make New Year’s Resolutions. Be it a resolution to lose weight, or more have family time, or spend less money, many times the resolutions fail. Maybe that is because a goal was defined but the plan for reaching that goal was not defined.

I’m so glad that God had a goal in mind when he created the world. He wanted fellowship with man to whom he had given a free will. He created all things, and man, and saw that it was good. However, because He is all-knowing, He knew that man would become sinful, and that He would have to redeem him. God had a plan.

In the fullness of time, He sent Jesus to be our sinless redeemer. Jesus came to pay the price with His life. It was a terrible cost. It wrenched the heart of God so much that he put 10,000 angels on alert to destroy everything if Jesus so much as called their name. But because he loved us so much, Jesus bore the punishment for our sin. The way to fellowship with God was restored.

Do you know the way to God’s plan for your life? Do you know the Savior? Why not read the Bible and find out for yourself? The book of John is a good place to start. It will help you discover God’s plan and how you fit into it. That is a good thing!

Thanks Dianne. If you would like to be a guest blogger or talk to someone about this blog, please check out the contact info at the bottom of the right column. Any comments?
